Snow in Tuscany
Ian writes: On Saturday morning we woke up to a good foot of snow. Quite unusual for Arezzo and hence the whole region descended into chaos. Whilst most people travel to Tuscany in the warmer months the winter can be truly beautiful: the tops of the hills are covered with snow from December to February and there is a decent skiing resort in the mountains above Pistoia at Abetone. Our nearest villa to Abetone is Ripiano. Many thanks to fellow tennis player Patrizia for the photographs.
